In China, Hotei is the god of good fortune and the guardian of children. His overly round shape indicates an abundance of inner wealth and a joy-filled soul. In fact, he was an actual person named Ch'i-tz'u, a 10th century Zen monk who wandered throughout China giving generously from his bottomless cloth sack he carried. Only at the time of his death did he reveal his true identity as the incarnation of Maitreya, the Buddha of the future.

Behind the "Resin Garden" Statue Collection
Our Resin Garden Statue Collection
We are delighted to offer this exceptional collection of Buddhist statues for the garden. They are hand cast in resin, a remarkably durable substance that has become the material of choice for producing garden ornaments. Resin has the appearance of metal and the feel of wood. It is much lighter in weight than concrete and offers heightened detail.
We chose a beautiful rust patina for the statues in this collection and allowed them to weather for several weeks prior to photographing them. They are appropriately placed both outdoors in the garden or indoors.
Originally carved by village craftspeople in Bali, the statues are cast and finished in California according to strict state environmental regulations. Made in USA.
